COZA: CAN reacts to rape allegation against pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo

The Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, has said it doesn’t direct how ministers work their holy places.

CAN President, Rev. Supo Ayokunle said this while responding to the most recent claims by the spouse of the prominent artist, Timi Dakolo, Busola, against Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo, organizer of COZA.

Busola had affirmed that the COZA originator had powerfully assaulted her when she was youthful.

The mother-of-three described how Pastor Fatoyinbo purportedly constrained his way into her when she was only 18 years.

In a quick response, Fatoyinbo denied the charge, however, conceded Busola once went to a similar church with his family.

Fatoyinbo like this requested his legal counselors to found both criminal and collective body of evidence against Busola.

Responding to the adventure, Ayodele’s Special Assistant on Media and Communications, Pastor Oladeji Adebayo, said CAN do not directs how ministers work.

Talking with Telegraph on the issue, Adebayo said the body neither manages nor mediate in the running of chapels.

He stated: “I am sorry CAN does not intercede in how chapels are running. Places of worship have a place with sections, and these are the two bodies that control how ministers run their services, not CAN.

CAN manages intrareligious matters and stands between the congregation and the administration.”
